Harrow Weald’s Mitchell Smith (10st 2lbs) has been through the mill since losing his ‘0’ against George Jupp (L10) last December yet as he told Alex Steedman of Britishboxers this week he believes he can overcome defeat, demotivation and depression to make it to the top.

The 23-year-old “Baby Face Assassin” registered a fourth-round retirement win over Norwin Galo (10st 2lbs) to get back on the winning track. Nicaragua’s Galo (7-5, 5 KOs) was disappointed to leave the fray, but Mitchell was on course for win number 14 (7 KOs) anyway and hopes to kick on from this.

“We can now, yeah,” he answered when BoxNation’s Steve Bunce asked if he can move on from Jupp loss. “I am happy to get back to winning ways.”

He is now working with renowned coach Adam Booth, who believes there is a lot more to come. “There was a lot for him to deal with mentally and emotionally—he kept breaking down in training because he wasn’t used to the intensity, but we kept with it,” he said.

He had a lot of illnesses. We talked about him making the right decisions day-by-day and everything will fall into place. He can fight, he has got phenomenal ability.”

“My journey is in his hands, where this man wants to take me is where I want to go,” added Smith.
